    Hi guys,

    I just wanted to write up and ask if you guys are experiencing the same lag as me opening 3rd party apps. To give you an example of loading times:

    Instagram: 9 seconds
    Hue: 7 seconds
    Citymapper: 4 seconds
    Opentable: 8 seconds

    Are people seeing loading times like this? It's really detracting from the usefulness..

    3rd party apps are not great. I already am not using them.

    This will be fixed in the future but for now I haven't really needed them. If I get an Instagram notification that's all I need, then I can just open the app on my phone.

    I think there's a great disconnect here between what Apple intended (a notification device) and how people are using it (like a full fledged phone).

    I disagree with you. You should be able to do things on your watch not just receive notifications. If I want to browse Twitter, it shouldn't take 27 (yes TWENTY SEVEN) seconds to load.

    For £519 I expect more than notifications, as nice as they are.

    My loading times vary so much, its weird, sometimes its instant, sometimes it takes a few seconds. Guess it depends on the signal strength.
